Vision Zero Malaysia


 

WHAT IS VISION ZERO?


 
 
  1. In order to further reduce occupational accident rates and the related human suffering and economic costs, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) advocates for a new approach, based on “Vision Zero”.

  2. “Vision Zero” is a strategy for preventing workplace accidents, based on the view that all accidents are preventable and that a world without fatal and serious accidents is possible. The culture is an integral part of management system based on the philosophy that ‘No Single Accident Is Acceptable’.

  3. “Vision Zero” promotes a culture of prevention and a commitment to safety by all people at the workplace. Importantly this culture must be an integral part of management systems, based on the philosophy that in principle no single accident is acceptable, as this provides a basis for learning from accidents and improving processes to avoid similar incidents in the future.

  4. The ISSA is committed to “Vision Zero” and supports social security institutions to actively contribute to this approach. The ISSA has been a driving force at the international level to mobilize stakeholders from the public sector, government, business and civil society to promote a culture of prevention.

 
 

Why Vision Zero?
